approach is appropriate planning approach for the city to take. we're moving the machines in north beach is really not economically efficient and i think there was a lot of commentary on that that you have seen. the tunnel-boring machinery is just a ruse to use funds to extend the subway beyond its federally -- it's otherwise federally-funded boundaries. the november, 2008 federal document approving this explicitly lists a temporary tunnel for the extraction of the tunnel-boring machines and thus if there are no tunnel-boring machines there will be no tunneling into north beach. however, the city wants to tunnel into northern beach to get a start on the subway that will extend further. this is fine if it would properly plan. i am aware there has been no proper planning on the extension of the subway beyond chinatown, no community meetings on what path it should take and how it would be used. we are starting to build for a future subway without the careful study and approval of what we are going to do. we need a plan before we start digging. so i suggest that somehow we take another

chinatown community development center. and from that the mta board directed me to work with city staff and the community and the owner of the site to pursue that option. we continued meeting with the community, had a couple of meeting over the course of december and january, including a larger public meeting again with both president chiu and on january 22nd to basically just keep the community apprised of the progress we were making toward the direction that i had received from the mta board. we have since received a number of letters of support from business groups, from community groups including some -- that represent quite a few people in support of the pagoda palace option. we have heard that during that time also some concerns about some of the technical matters about the project, both construction related and environmental related. but it was a report that was commissioned by a group that opposes the overall project that raised a number of concerns. however, i think the premise upon which their concerns were raised were based on an incomplete understanding of the project both techn

is not a city wide program in the fact it's only effective where signs are posted and authorized by the sf mta board of directors. this will continue to allow over sized vehicles to park on some san francisco streets but it gives us an additional tool to address the issues related to over night parking of large vehicles on a focused location specific basis. these -- some of these locations have resulted in some negative impacts from parking over night vehicles -- over night large sized vehicles and that's what we're attempting to address. i also want to refresh your memory. we did a sampling of the neighborhoods in the city prior to the legislation being considered and over 450 type of vehicles that far in this classification we found that 42% of them were motor homes but more importantly over 50% of them consist of trucks and buss and trailers so this legislation will also capture those types of vehicles and it's very important because i think a lot of our -- the concerns that we received from the neighborhoods were for those vehicles being warehoused on the city streets, and from
